Minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the field of gastrointestinal surgery and GKNMH is equipped with state-of-the-art high-definition camera systems along with advanced laparoscopic technology to support performance of complex gastrointestinal cancer surgeries. “There has been an increase in the incidence of gastrointestinal cancers, particularly esophageal, stomach and colorectal cancers largely due to the lifestyle and dietary change. Laparoscopic surgery has been accepted as the standard of care for these cancers, owing to better patient outcomes in terms of less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stay, however with no compromise on cancer clearance.

The immense expertise of the anesthesia and critical care unit enables the gastrointestinal surgeons to smoothly perform major liver, pancreatic and biliary tract surgeries.

Bariatric or Weight loss surgery is another specialized aspect of gastrointestinal surgery. The last decade has witnessed a significant increase in the incidence of obesity with its associated metabolic problems. “Laparoscopic surgery for weight loss with short hospital stay has greatly helped these patients shed their excess weight, reduce dose or stop antihypertensive and antidiabetic medicines and lead a physically fit life”.
